Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, if the house is to be free to continue the debate on the defence estimates on Thursday, it will be necessary to suspend the rule under which the Speaker leaves the chair without question put. I move, therefore, with the consent of the house:
That the provision of standing order 28 respecting the committee of supply be suspended for the sittings of Thursday, 18th February, and Friday, 19th February, 1937.

Topic:   BUSINESS OF THE HOUSE
